How can I SEARCH for a document on my W10 PC that contains a specific word, say GERONOMO? Assume I have no idea where on the PC it may be.

 

That kind of search was straightforward with XP. Not so (for me) with W10.

 

How could I have answered this question myself using the HELP screens on W10?

 

Thanks. .... batpark

I did a google search:  search for a word in a file windows 10.  Found this: How To Make Windows 10 Search Through File Contents
